This book just keeps getting sadder and sadder, and I mean that in the best way possible. King's exploration of what it means to be human has made the Vision a true "Avenger." Seeking justice for his son's death, we'll see where the story leads us (and ends?!) in two more issues. What I find most exciting about each issue are the overlays of soliloquy or dialogue pasted on panels simply showing ea more

Up to this point in the series, I've been enjoying King's writing and Finch's fantastic art. But with this issue, I've truly become a fan.

Chew

Tony Chu is a cop with a secret. A weird secret. Tony Chu is Cibopathic, which means he gets psychic impressions from whatever he eats. It also means he's a hell of a detective, as long as he doesn't mind nibbling on the corpse of a murder victim to figure out whodunit, and why. It's a dirty job, and Tony has to eat terrible things in the name of j...
